Bill Belichick responded briefly to the Seth Wickersham ESPN article this morning that claimed he was on his way out of Foxboro.
The only question Bill answered when asked about the article was that he will in fact be back next year in New England, something Seth claimed may not happen because of how toxic things are:
#Patrriots coach Bill Belichick tells reporters he “absolutely” plans to coach New England next season.

Seth was on WEEI this morning with Kirk and Callahan and got absolutely eviscerated by Kirk Minihane. At one point during the interview, Seth claimed “I didn’t say that in the article” in reference to a half day meeting between Belichick and Kraft. Minihane then proceeded to read the line Seth published, sparking Wickersham to acknowledge he didn’t remember what he wrote. It seemed that a lot of the little details that Seth added to the piece were simply fabricated. It’s like Seth took the truth of things that may have happened, and ran with it filling in the gaps himself with a plethora of anonymous sources from within the organization.
